Take the room with the best view. Room number 1, facing the water. Luxuriate in your raised and supremely comfortable bed. Turn on the big fireplace. Lean over the balcony and listen to the ducks. Open the champagne in the fridge. You could be forgiven for not going out at all. And yet in Queenstown there is much to go... More

Great view of the lake and mountains right out the front windows. Small comfy sinning room with a fireplace. Great place for a meal or coffee. Service is very professional and prompt. Price very reasonable when compared to other hotels in the area. Very relaxed breakfast and a break from the cold outside. Highly recommended.

Wow - what can I say. We didn't want to leave! Incredible staff, who were so so helpful to my husband, my Mother and our 2 young children. The interior decor of both the hotel and apartment are just fabulous and we loved the pre dinner cocktails upstairs in the lounge. Location couldn't be better, right on the waterfront and... More

We have just returned home from a week staying in a 2-bedroom apartment. This was our first family ski trip (two daughters, 7 & 5yrs) and we hoped to make it as enjoyable (and easy) as possible, so the kids would like to go skiing with us again! We were recommended Eichardt’s for their exceptional service, location and accommodation. They... More

We've just returned from our first ever skiing experience having stayed at the Residence run by Eichardt's - it was incredible. The staff led by Kieran were amazing and any request made of them was never too much trouble. I could not recommend the Residence highly enough as a place to consider staying at if visiting Queenstown with a family... More

Well this is truly a boutique hotel with no real facilities to speak of. it has a small restaurant and bar and that's it. But what it lacks in facilities and amenities, it makes up for in hospitality and uniqueness. it is a beautiful little downtown hotel with only 5 rooms expanding to 7. it is truly in the heart...
